How Ruth Bader Ginsburg’s death could reshape the presidential campaign

By STEVE PEOPLES | Associated Press NEW YORK — A presidential campaign that was already tugging at the nation’s most searing divides has been jolted by the death of Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg, potentially reshaping the election at a moment when some Americans were beginning to cast ballots.

Whicker: Lakers, unlike the Clippers, don’t ask you to wait until next year

Five days later, his parting words still scrape on the eardrum. Did Paul George really say that the Clippers’ 2019-20 season wasn’t a matter of “championship or bust?” Technically, he is correct. There is no record of either George or Kawhi Leonard promising that the Clippers would be this year’s champions. Practically, it is one of the all-time cop-outs, since it came a few minutes after Leonard and George combined to miss 28 of 38 shots at the end of the Clippers’ listless Game 7 farewell. The...

Successful Aging: There are ways to connect with grandchildren during the pandemic

Q. Before the pandemic, I was a physically active grandmother to three young grandchildren. Currently, I am extremely compliant with the CDC recommendations because of my husband’s compromised immune system. Some of my family members and friends are less cautious. Because I am not physically present, I feel passed over for those grandmotherly activities in favor of those who are less cautious. I’ve become the absent grandmother which is having a negative effect on my mental health. I feel I have...

Entertainment industry treading water after 6 months of coronavirus restrictions

Entertainment happens in gathering places, which is what officials are trying to discourage to combat the novel coronavirus. When the COVID-19 pandemic broke out in March, few people could have imagined a world without places to go for entertainment: no amusement parks, no multiplexes for movies, no theaters or festival grounds for concerts, no casinos. But not only did all those venues close, most haven’t reopened. And as we head into fall, no one knows when they will come back. They are part o...

LOS ANGELES — Dismissing the sheriff’s department release of videos and information surrounding the Westmont shooting of Dijon Kizzee by two deputies as a “media-driven sideshow,” an attorney for Kizzee’s family said Friday that the man’s killing was nothing short of “an execution.” Attorney Carl Douglas said in a statement that Kizzee’s family was “disturbed by the unspoken messages and half-truths expressed” during a sheriff’s department news conference Thursday to update the investigation of ...
